McAfee Security for Email Servers provides multilayered protection for incoming and outgoing email—from on-demand malware scanning to policy enforcement for preventing loss or abuse of sensitive data.
Industry-leading protection — Uses award winning McAfee in-memory and incremental on-demand scanning to remove viruses, worms, Trojans, and other threats from incoming and outgoing email
Strong internal safeguards — Detects threats that may have either slipped past your perimeter defenses or entered your network via infected laptops and internal email. It also blocks spam with the antispam module.
Powerful content filtering — Enforces corporate policies for email use by filtering for banned file types, offensive content, and plugging leaks of sensitive data
Single console management — Uses the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee ePO™) platform to deploy, manage security, and display detailed graphical reports

Testing the anti-virus component
You must have administrator privileges on the Windows system to perform this task. The agent extension must be installed on the ePolicy Orchestrator server before the agent is installed on any clients.
The recommended method to test an anti-virus product is to attach an EICAR anti-virus test file to an email message, and to send the message through the Exchange server where you’ve just installed McAfee Security for Microsoft Exchange.
The EICAR standard anti-virus test file was created jointly by several anti-virus vendors throughout the world to implement a standard by which customers can verify their anti-virus installations.
Important: This file is not a virus. Ensure that you delete the file when you have finished testing your installation to avoid alarming unsuspecting users.
Testing the anti-spam component
You can test the operation of the software by running the GTUBE (General Test mail for Unsolicited Bulk Email) test. The test email message must be sent from an external email account (a different domain).
